to the fundamental disagreement between governor palin and me and senator mccain and barack obama. and that is that we will fundamentally change the focus of the economic policies. we will focus on the middle- class because it is when the middle class is growing that the economy grows and everybody does well. much as the focus on corporate america. >> i think the commission also. it is a privilege to be here and speak with americans. a good barometer here to see if this was a good time are a bad time in america's economy -- go to a kids' soccer game on saturday and turn any parent on the sideline and say how are you feeling about the economy and i bet you you will hear some fear in that parents voice. fear regarding the few investments that some of us have in the stock market. did we just take a major hit with those investments? fear about how will we afford to send our kids to college. a fear as small-business owners on how we will bar any made to increase inventory or hire more people. the barometer will be resoundingly that our economy is hurting and the federal government has
and continue to harm our economy. >> moderator: senator? biden: charge is absolutely not true. barack obama did not vote to raise taxes. the vote she's referring to, john mccain voted the exact same way. it was a budget procedural vote. john mccain voted the same way, it did not raise taxes. number two, using the standard that the governor uses, john mccain voted 477 times to raise taxes. it's a bogus standard. but if you notice, gwen, the governor did not answer the question about deregulation. did not answer the question of defending john mccain about not going along with the deregulation, letting wall street run wild. he did support deregulation almost across the board. that's why we got -- >> moderator: would you like to have an opportunity to answer that? palin: i'm still on the tax thing because i want to correct you on that again, and i want to let you know what i did as a governor or mayor, i'm going to talk straight to the american people and let 'em know my track record also. as mayor every year i was in office, i did reduce taxes. i eliminated personal property taxes and eliminated s
disagreement between governor palin and me and senator mccain and barack obama, and that is that the -- we're going to fundamentally change the focus of the economic policy. we're going to focus on the middle class, because it's -- when the middle class is growing, the economy grows and everybody does well, not just focus on the wealthy and corporate america. >> thank you, senator. governor palin? >> thank you, gwen. and i thank the commission, also. i appreciate this privilege of being able to be here and speak with americans. you know, i think a good barometer here, as we try to figure out has this been a good time or a bad time in america's economy, is go to a kid's soccer game on saturday, and turn to any parent there on the sideline and ask them, "how are you feeling about the economy?" and i'll bet you, you're going to hear some fear in that parent's voice, fear regarding the few investments that some of us have in the stock market. the barometer there, i think, is going to be resounding that our economy is hurting and the federal government has not provided the sound oversight that

if barack obama win virginia i'd been hard pressed to see george alan winning the senate race. there are not that many president obama/george alan voter fopz fvote vot voters. remember we're talking about 50, 70, 110,000 votes, maybe that can make the difference in some of the places. so i think people will make a decision between you know, tim kaine and george alan but who turns out, who votes, what the composition electorate look like? it can matter the margins and the margins may be where the raise decided. one quick thing to chuck's point about people who have already voted versus people who are expected to vote for romney in the ohio poll. look, chuck and i agree on this, any political operative will tell you, we much rather have the vote already cast than well we're going to vote for you. it's the difference between somebody writing you a check and somebody saying, i'll write you a check in 26 days. i get the whole -- >> or the check's in the mail. >> i get the romney argument and they're probably right for all of the reasons chuck talked about in terps of the demographi

if obama shuts down the government in january, the democrats lose ten senate seats, ten of which are vulnerable in 20 # 14. a democratic senate and republican house encysts that obama extends the tax cuts. gerri: i'm not sure everybody is so sanguine. mitt romney's been called a liar for the ideas on taxation and taxes. he wants to cut taxes 20% across the board for everybody, the poor, the wealthy, the people in between. can you do that and get rid of breaks in the tax code for wealthy people and come out with anything like a balanced budget? >> well, two things. yes, you can bring in the same amount of revenue with tax reform, but, remember, republicans believe if you do marginal tax rates, you actually get more growth. when reagan cut tax rates, he added 10 million more people not work rolls than obama's spend more approach. put 10 million people to work, take in reagan's approach to the recession would have jobs, that's a lot of revenue coming to the government and growth as a result. yes, romney's proposal, cut marginal tax rates and reign in spending is what reagan did and
goes from 24% of gdp to 20%, to 16%. if obama wins, democratic house and senate, his budget takes spending up to 38% of t economy during that same period. a government twice as large. if you have split government, obama gets elected in a a republican house or republican house or senator, what happens is exactly wha happened two years ago which is they'll extent bush tax cuts for two years and fight it out in two years. there's not going to be a cliff. everybody knows this because if obama shuts down the government in januar theemocrats lse ten senate seats, ten of which eulnerable in 20 # 14. a democratic senate d republican house encys that obama extends the tax cuts. gerri: i'm not se everybody is sanguine. mitt romney's been called a liar for the ideas on taxation and taxes. he wants to cut taxes 20% across the board for everybody, the poor, th wealthy, the people in between. can you do that and get rid of breaks in the tax code for wealthy people and come out with anything like a balanced budget? >> well, two things. yes, you can bring in the same amount of revenue with tax fo
it was then senator obama, a young first-term senator who did not have very much foreign policy experience was being questioned whether he was up to the test of commander in chief, not just by republicans but by his own vice presidential nominee who said at an event that obama would be tested early if his first term if he was elected by folks around the world as to whether or not he had the meddle to -- mettle to get the job done. they believe he has. listen to the president last night paying his case. >> four years ago i told you i would end the war in iraq. we did. i said i would end the war in afghanistan. we are. i said we would focus on the people who actually attacked us on 9/11. today, osama bin laden is in more. >>reporter: there lab a dip, though, in the president's approval rating regarding handling of foreign policy in the fox news poll and the nbc and "wall street journal" poll in recent weeks after the terror attack in libya. however, in the polls the president is still doing well on foreign policy but the point is, their vulnerability on the issue, especially in recent weeks after the

, senator obama and senator mccain asked us to do one with the podium. they did the same this time with the governor and the president. we are not going to argue about the format as long as they don't touch the integrity of the format itself. we think a better format in getting full discussion of issues in depth of discussion of issues is when you are seated at a table, rather than standing behind a podium. >> no one is more aware than you of all the discussion, and a lot of criticism of the first round of debates this season and how jim lehrer moderated. the commission has put out a statement saying he did exactly the way he wanted, which was a much more open format. take us behind the scenes. since that debate happen, how much discussion internally about how to moderate the open format differently this time around. >> susan, nothing has changed. we think jim did exactly what we asked him to do. the only time limits, and they will be tonight also, and the first question is asked, the candidates will have two minutes to respond. after that, there are no other time limits. it is jus
, when you look back at 2008, the debate between senator mccain and then senator obama, senator obama was cutting and slashing in his presentation there, he said some very strong, if not offensive things, to senator mccain. but he also said it with his back to senator mccain. and that was interesting tactic. a direct on offensive, talking to the people asking him the question and saying the god awful things he believed to be true about senator mccain's policies. >> because of that debate, there were critics that said that senator mccain never glanced at senator obama. >> and referred to him as that one, and there was mainstream pressure on that one. we're use today oprah and phil donahue and on the fox news channel and it's the sine quanon, and so policy is important. >> in the future, it's important. but do i have the ability to be friends with the person that's asking the question even though i don't agree with them. >> and you're going to be at the debate. what are you looking for. >> i'm going to be look for the ability to connect with the audience and senator now president obama

say that favorite is obama. today you would say the democrats are likely to keep the senate. governor romney has a very narrow path, and if he wins the presidency, that means there is a wave behind him, there is some left to him, and that will bring in a couple candidates to put them all won over. >> so you understand, charlie cook has forgotten more about the senate races than i ever knew. he is the bible in this. but of the reasons people beforehand a year ago thought the republicans were so sure is 2006 was a wave election and democrats won in a lot place where you did not expect them to win. the democrats work defending 23 seats and republicans only to end. by the nature of the math, it seems likely that the republicans would pick up seats and the democrats would lose. now i think the conventional wisdom is it is less than 50-50 that the republicans will take the senate. >> talk about the house for a moment, controlled by republicans. democrats would have to pick up a lot of the seats. >> it is a long shot. democrats needed 25 seats. put that in context, at the end of world war ii
, that was dishonest. >> when senator obama said in 2008, i'm going to cut the deficit in half, close gitmo, people said that was unrealistic, but didn't say he wasn't telling the truth. there's a difference, isn't there? >> no. closing gitmo involved an act of congress, and he wasn't able to get congress to agree with him on that question. this is basic math. >> greta: joining us our political panel, abc news senior washington editor rick klein, casey huntington, and byron york. rick, first you. i thought it was executive order to close gitmo, just needed congress to place the people. am i right? >> they realized it was going to be harder than they wanted. the distinction he's making is in terms of campaign pledges versus actions that you can possibly have congress do later. it's a stretch obviously. one man's lie and dishonesty. >> greta: it's name-calling. >> you've seen a shift from the obama campaign in terms of how they're trying to discuss and describe mitt romney. for a long time they were more interested in trying to describe him as a conservative extremist. they didn't want to go after hi
the vice president, think again. remember, the young senator obama just 47 years old in 2008 when he faced senator john mccain who was 72 at the time. needless to say, then senator obama held his own. but there's no telling who will win tonight. one thing is for certain, though. they're both equally passionate and energetic winning people over to their party come november 6th. with me right now, the dynamic duo. cnn political reporter peter hamby and paul steinhauser. good to see you. paul, first things first, when we're talking about the controversial romney 47% comments, do you think biden will go there tonight where his boss did not? >> i think a lot of democrats want that to happen, brooke. there's disappointment, peter, i think that's obvious. the president wasn't going very aggressively against mitt romney over the 47% controversy, over bain capital, the tax returns. i think vice president biden is not been shy at all in the campaign trail, brooke. that's fair to say. what we're looking at tonight is, is he as aggressive going after not the guy sitting next to him but his boss, mitt
from the deadly attack in libya. former c.i.a. director, criticizing the obama administration as a senate committee is launching its investigation. >> eric: vice president biden, stealing the show as he faced off with congressman ryan. coming up, we'll have a fair and balanced look at the message he may have sent to voters. >> this is a bunch of stuff. look, here is the deal -- >> what does that mean a bunch of stuff? >> it means it's simply inaccurate. >> arthel: it's irish.

the middle class even more. during the 2008 debates, senator obama assured us he fully understood our problems and he had the right solutions. he promised to make health care more affordable. president obama promise to get our spending under control by cutting the deficit in half. he was so confident that shortly after taking office president obama said he would fix the economy in three years or face a one-term proposition. today he has broken the promises. his words have no credibility. host: that was the republican weekly address. ralph from the main joins us on the independent line. caller: i was born in 1950, 61 years old. i have gone through all kinds of things. my dad was in the service -- i have had two fathers. i am taking care of my mother now who is just getting one cut back after another through social security. medical benefits. i am not happy. i know what is going on. in the last five years i have taking care of her 24-7. i have had time to educate myself on what it is. until we understand who the enemy is, nothing will change and their plans will continue. there are manu
experience than senator obama did. he was on the foreign relations committee. >> norah, i voted to send men and women to war. i've been to iraq and afghanistan. i've met with our troops to get perspectives. i've been to the funerals, i've talked to the widows, talked to the wives, the moms and the dads. that's something. that matters. >> yeah. the sitting vice president shouldn't have much problem landing a blow on a claim like that. though perhaps rather than boxing, it's more accurate to think of thursday night as tag team wrestling with each candidate making the power move that their partner missed. of course, ultimately a vice presidential candidate's relationship to his running mate is more like hulk hogan's bandana or sledgehammer, fleshy accessory. they will be in the ring on thursday and they'll both have opponent's partner firmly in their sights. with me at the table is steve kornacki, the host of the cycle and senior writer for salon.com. sigh yu is the founding director of new american leaders project. a national organization for specifically focused on preparing first and second

[applause] in 24 days let's be reminded about what'
intellect and a prosecutor's drive to countless battles in the senate. president obama came out this afternoon and said that specter was always a fighter from the days of starching out prosecution as a prosecutor in philadelphia and three decades of service in the senate. he was fiercely independent, never putting part or ideology ahead of the people he was chosen to serve. former president george w. bush said he loved our country and served it with integrity for three decades in the united states senate. we appreciate his contributions to america and are grateful for his many years of public service. he died at 11:39 this morning from complications of lymphoma and that the service is going to be on tuesday in penn valley, pennsylvania. he served as a democrat, then a republican, and then a democrat again. he was part of 13 supreme court confirmation hearings and crossed party lines during the robert bork hearing voting against bork which was seen as an important factor in that failed nomination, long before he became pennsylvania's longest serving senator, he was the district a

that barack obama's budget was put in the house and senate and got revoked. that a stellar argument that we're going to talk about barack obama's budget because he's gotten zero votes in house and senate. when you are negotiating, it's hard to negotiate with yourself. the democrats of never figured out a way to get their coalition around one thing, especially in the house. we look forward to negotiating with them and increasing job growth. host: have democrats given up? guest: that is completely untrue. we've invested a lot of money in this district. the real story here is this race is in play at all and the first place. the reason it is employees because before there was a tea party, steve king was the tea party. he was the original tea party. this race should not be in play. this is a longtime incumbent and has been in a long time. it should have never come into play. he was checked out of the district and cared more about hanging out with michele bachmann. last time i checked, there is no border there. this race is in play and we are all in. guest: they're all in without any money. steve
